For physical items, it's the location of the people taking the money; online & phone purchases are listed as occurring in the seller's location, even if they ship the item to another state.
For digital items, the "location of transfer of item" is almost impossible to identify--is that the place where the originator's server is? One of the servers used in the transfer? The final destination? (If it's downloaded to a third-party PC in another country, does that change the purchase?)
